With two spots in the 2013 NCAA Tournament championship game on the line Saturday afternoon, the Final Four delivered two exciting and somewhat controversial games. When it was all said and done, the tournament’s No. 1 overall seed Louisville Cardinals and No. 4-seeded Michigan Wolverines advanced to Monday night’s championship game.

The Final Four brought us an appearance from Will Ferrell, an incredible fan sign to remind Michigan how many timeouts they had remaining and a beautiful no-look pass from Mitch McGary, but the best is still ahead.

The Louisville vs. Michigan match up has some incredible storylines to follow with everything on the line.

Can Louisville continue to play incredible ball and get Rick Pitino his second national championship while they play for their injured teammate Kevin Ware or will Michigan return to glory in their first championship appearance since 1993?

We’ve got just over 24 hours to analyze and discuss the potential outcome of the game, but it will all be settled on the court Monday night at 9:23 p.m. ET.
